Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, May 29th, 2013 from 11:30am to 12:30pm eastern time (8:30 - 9:30 pacific time) for the next Vasari Talk:
New Features for Design Guidance with Automatic Sensitivity Analysis in GBS.
This session will be of interest for anyone interested in getting valuable feedback with seamless energy analysis from Revit, Vasari or through the GBS website or APIs. No experience is necessary to use this tool.
In this session, Autodesk's David Scheer, product owner with the Green Building Studio teams, will discuss the concepts of sensitivity analysis and why it is critical to the design process. Learn how to focus your building design efforts on what matters and what doesn’t. Understand comparative feedback on the performance of your design, and information on the variability of design options for specific locations and building types. David will demonstrate how the new Potential Energy Savings (PES) app automatically creates and runs 40 alternative energy simulations each time you submit a simulation request, runs them in parallel, and provides you clear design guidance with the new PES chart, all at no additional cost.
To prepare for this free training, and if you don't already have a Green Building Studio entitlement through Autodesk360, click here to start your free trial for GBS. You can use this service through Revit, Vasari, by uploading a gbXML on the GBS website, or by using our growing library of APIs through the ADN.
After this session, participants will be able to:
- Create a Potential Energy Savings chart using a sample project.
- Identify which building characteristics in the study have little effect on energy performance and which ones effect energy performance the most.
- Explain the effect that location has on the energy performance sensitivity for a sample project.
- Explain the difference between design sensitivity and performance sensitivity.
